Orbit have announced the signing of the Bulgarian team known as MK (previously E-frag.net).
Just two days after releasing their former roster, Orbit have revealed their new one as they added the lineup of MK to their ranks. The Bulgarian squad recently parted ways with E-frag.net, under whose name they have played since July of 2015.
Kamen “bubble” Kostadinov & company most recently attended ESEA Premier Season 21 Europe Finals and ended up in 3-4th place, failing to qualify for the next season of the ESL Pro League.
Orbit announced that they believe the Bulgarian lineup is the team that has the most potential in the flourishing CS:GO scene in a statement from COO Rob Stamey which can be found below:
“We are thrilled to finally reveal our new CSGO team to the public! Our organisation has worked hard over the past weeks and months to find a team that can meet and exceed our fan’s and sponsor’s expectations. These five Bulgarian players have a proven track record for success, as well as the determination to reach the plateau of Counter Strike rankings.”
Teammate Nikolay “nkl” Krustev also released his own words on the signing:
“We are feeling really excited to make that big step forward and join a well known organisation as Orbit. We will do our best to represent them as they deserve and continue playing at the top level of the Counter Strike scene. We would like to thank for the opportunity and the chance to be a part of them.”
Orbit’s roster consists of:
Kamen “bubble” Kostadinov
Emiliyan “spyleadeR” Dimitrov
Nikolay “nkl” Krustev
Viktor “v1c7oR” Dyankov
Simeon “dream3r” Ganev
Orbit will see action this weekend in France as the Bulgarians will try to qualify for the Major qualifier at DreamHack Regional Minor Championship Europe at DH Tours 2016 where Nikolay “pNshr” Paunin will be standing in for Simeon “dream3r” Ganev. Their first match will be against SK at 12:00 on Saturday.
